Over the September long weekend, thousands of people flocked to St. Malo to participate in the community’s end of summer celebration.

Each year the St. Malo Summer Festival grows more popular. The four day event kicked off on August 30 with bingo, scavenger hunt, hot wheel races. The evening ended with a spectacular fireworks display.

On Saturday the day started with a parade followed by the family baseball tournament. There were tons of children’s activities inside the arena while the adults played outdoors.

Soap box races pitted brother against brother and father against son and competition was fierce. At the end of the day the Official kick-off to the Western Canadian Junior B Championship took place with a 50`s and 60`s Dance.

On Sunday morning the community gathered together for a pancake breakfast before the soap box and iron man races took place. The day ended with a community dance at the arena.
